Lunar Mini Golf's two 18-hole indoor courses whisks putters away to a black-lit labyrinth sculpted through a phosphorescent dreamscape of vibrant murals and neon obstacles. Tiny neon walls frame the pitch-black corridors of each hole, which gives the impression that patrons are rolling orbs across the rayless expanse of the cosmos or through their neighbors' radioactive crawlspaces. Clubbers clad in white will shine like gleaming apparitions as they read tricky breaks and keep the yips at bay, and Lunar Mini Golf offers glowing necklaces for clients to wear to capitalize on the visually mesmerizing lure of the black lights. Catering to large groups, Lunar Mini Golf also features a complimentary party zone available upon request for birthdays, corporate gatherings, and ceremonies unveiling new neon eyebrow tattoos.

The Georgia Trail is a 9-hole golf course with rolling greens, a 2.5-acre lake, and numerous streams. Hole six, the most picturesque on the course, measures 191 yards from the back tees and has a water hazard butting up against the green. The onsite Augusta’s Restaurant includes an outdoor cabana bar that overlooks the golf club, surrounded by palm trees, waterfalls, and fire pits filled with lost golf balls. The menu includes homemade soups, hearty salads, and a variety of burgers, sandwiches, and entrees.
Cleaved through forests of towering hardwoods, Hampton Golf Village’s 18-hole course ripples over the rolling foothills of North Georgia, showcasing a 6,903-yard, par 71 layout. The undulating terrain is incorporated the most on the front nine, where dramatic elevation changes give an advantage to golfers who can adjust their swing for uphill or downhill targets. Streams and wetlands intersect the fairways on the back nine, which winds through more grounded terrain to give relief to both thirsty golf carts and those with a fear of heights. After testing their skills across the two distinct nines, golfers can fuel up with a meal at the Village Grill, which serves hot dogs, hamburgers, and other traditional eats.
Fountain-frothed ponds and rolling hills of bermuda grass encircle Traditions of Braselton’s tree-line grounds designed by famed link-itect Mike Dasher. Five tee placements offer alternate takes on the expansive course, all of which are a par 72 for average golfers, and a par 0 for those taking an existential approach. The multiple tee offs allow players to tailor a game according to their skill level, while the included golf cart ensures an invigorating round of walk-spoilage in every sense of the word. Check out a hole-by-hole walk-through of the fair-looking fairways here.
